Trump blasts climate "doomsayers" in Davos
President Donald Trump arrived in Davos, Switzerland, Tuesday, January 21, to participate in the World Economic Forum , a few hours before his impeachment trial got to the heart of the matter in Washington.
In her much awaited speech, the tenant of the White House attacked without naming her to Greta Thunberg, the environmental activist, also present in the Swiss station to defend the fight against global warming.

"Predictions of the apocalypse"
"We must reject the eternal prophets of doom and their predictions of the apocalypse," said Donald Trump, shortly after the young Swedish girl regretted that "nothing has been done" to stop climate change.
After spouting in a rather monotonous tone a long list of economic and social successes, having earned in the United States "a boom like never seen before", the American president praised the abundant production of hydrocarbons from United States, "world number one in gas and oil", and their energy independence. Without ever mentioning renewable energy.
At the end of this real campaign speech, the billionaire, who is running for re-election and faces a dismissal trial, said that "fear and doubt (were not) good ways of thinking", praising the innovation rather than regulation.
Difficult not to see in her speech a message to environmental activists and in particular to Greta Thunberg, who, according to the New York Times, should repeat it in the afternoon in a speech that it is time to "panic "because the" house is burning". These expressions had already impressed the economic and political elite of Davos during the first participation last year of the young Swedish girl.
